to determine how to carry those out. white house spokesman jay carney warned that critics of nsa surveillance should be careful what they wish for. >> we're one attack away from assessments about what went wrong in our intelligence capabilities and collections. the work that's being done here saves lives. >> reporter: whether listening in on the leaders of close allies such as german chancellor merkel saves lives, the white house didn't have an answer. though it confirmed it is reassessing such high level surveillance as part of its overall intelligence review. on the hill today, european lawmakers went head-to-head with congressional leaders on nsa spying. the head of the delegation told me their discussion was frank. >> you had a very stern message to deliver. >> i think we had a very robust and strong message when we came to congress today. this bill which has come through the allegations is something that's [ inaudible ]. they feel very uneasy. they don't know why it's happening, why our strongest ally is doing it. >> reporter: today, they had more to talk about regarding spain, where the

(laughter) explaining who we are and targeting just who we are targeting with these programs. >> who are they spying on? >> we're going after terrorists with those programs. >> stephen: okay? we're going after terrorists so all we're saying is angela merkel is a terrorist. why doesn't she want us to listen to her
've heard from carney briefly today, jay carney here. but the relationship the president has particularly with angela merkel, any kind of deal making? >> it makes it difficult and it certainly would give germany leverage to some degree in some of these discussions because the u.s. is in a position where it was caught doing something it had not previously acknowledged it was doing. how this ultimately plays out is a little difficult. we're still in early days since the revelations and sometimes these things do calm down a little bit. however, as we've seen with the snowden revelations they seem to gain momentum over time. what will be the main challenge for the obama administration is how to sort of restore this trust that germany and some of the other european leaders have talked about because they still do need germany to work with them on lots of key national security and economic issues. >> siobhan gorman, thank you very much. intriguing report. >>> developing as well right now, we're learning that a british man is under arrest in england charged with hacking into u.s. government compu

already had health insurance, you could keep your plan no matter what, spokesman jay carney acknowledged today that promise is not being kept. >> it's true that there are existing health care plans on the individual market that don't meet those minimum standards and therefore do not qualify. >> reporter: carney's admission came just hours after the president's long-time advisor david axelrod acknowledged on msnbc. >> the vast majority of people in this country are keeping their plans. >> reporter: which means others are not. even though the president said this when he was selling the law. >> if you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. period. no one will take it away. no matter what. >> reporter: republican senator ron johnson is now pushing legislation to grandfather as many consumers as possible into their current plans after reports of hundreds of thousands of people getting cancellation notices. among the 14 million people who'd buy their own coverage because they do not have employer-based insurance. while those mass cancellations raise doubts
. the nsa denied mr. obama was briefed that far back. while at the white house spokesman jay carney said the president recognizes the need for additional constraints on gathering and using intelligence. >> and we're also reviewing these programs because the president believes it's very important that even as they look to keep america and americans safe, that they do so in a way that reflects the sincere concerns about privacy that americans have and that our allies have. >> back in berlin germany's interior minister would not rule out expelling u.s. diplomats. >> already in july i said during my talks in washington that it would be absolutely unbearable for us if german law was broken on german ground. now it turns out that this was the case. >> reporter: which made it nearly certain that the fallout is far from over and that difficult talks lie ahead. to that end a delegation of u.s. lawmakers plans to journey to brussels soon. >> ifill: we'll have more on how intelligence-gathering is fraying relations with u.s. allies, right after the news summary. penn state university will pay nearl
. here is the white house spokesman jay carney. >> wow. tough weekend, huh? thanks for being here. i hope you had a great weekend. the red sox won last night, in case you missed it. heck of a season -- heck of a series. the whole team. very exciting. for baseball fans everywhere. was not as good. [laughter] before i take your questions, a couple announcements. first, tomorrow the president will meet with ceo's from financial, energy, information sectors to defense discuss the implementation of the president's executive order improving infrastructure cybersecurity. this meeting is part of the administration's ongoing dialogue with the private sector on cybersecurity. second announcement. this went on a different subject. the centers for medicare and studies announce major savings for seniors and people due tosabilities measures by the affordable care act to strengthen medicare. next year, premiums and adaptable spore medicare part b, which covers items like physicians visits, outpatient hospital services, and durable medical equipment, will not increase. zero percent growth from 2013. in f
told the germans he didn't know about this. what jay carney said is we are not doing it now, we will not do it in the future. >> it started under president bush but continued under president obama. >> he said he would change things. there is more continuity from president bush to president obama on a lot of security issues than people would have imagined. there is a lot of blow back with the president with his allies. >> george, is it fair to say the rules are changing on spying on our friends, at least? >> a new technology has given government new power. what we know about government is they use the powers they get. i'm more sympathetic to angela merkel than i think brit is. i think to understand it, you have to understand she was born in 1954 in east germany. she grew up in a surveillance state administered by the secret police. you want to understand that, go to a movie. go to see "the lives of others" 2006, won an academy award. the best foreign language films. >> i have seen it. pretty scary. >> so evidently did mr. snowden who reportedly was influenced by this. so did bill
paraphernal parenthetically in a speech. now, today, jay carney, this is the most telling thing i've seen all year he said of the people losing their health insurance. the 5% currently purchased insurance on an individual market and that market has been like the wild west. it has been underregulated. in other words you're an outlaw if you're in that market. it's your fault you're losing your insurance. >> well, he's not saying it's your fault. he's saying we've now regulated the market. those people had no other choice but to go. they didn't get it from their employer. >> how does he know that? these are people freely bought insurance and he's saying you bought the wrong kind of insurance. maybe they like their insurance. >> i think what tucker has just established that it wasn't an unforced error but it was absolutely forced because they couldn't have got the 60 votes if they'd turned to the country and said by the way you cannot have what you have now because all the polls show, again, most americans had insurance and most were happy with it. >> the white house -- you referenced this, linda

house and secretary jay carney hold a briefing today scheduled at 12:45 p.m. eastern time, he is expected to get questions on the subject. those are some of the latest headlines on c-span radio. of bess wallace and harry truman began here in her home in independence, missouri. >> when my grandfather visited independents, 26 miles from where he lived at the time, 1910, he often stayed across the street at the nolan house where his aunt and two cousins lived. one afternoon he was over there with his cousins, with the family, and his aunt brought in a cake plate that my great- wallace hadmadge given her a cake and mrs. nolan had cleaned the cake plate and was asking if anybody would take it back over. and my grandfather, moved with what my mother once described as something approaching the speed of light, grabbed the cake plate and ran over here and rang the bell on the front door in the hope, of course, that my grandmother would answer the door, and she did. and she invited him in. and that is the beginning of their formal courtship in 1910. as we continue our series on first la
german report that the president actually knew merkel's phone was tapped. and white house spokesman jay carney said the u.s. is just keeping up with new technologies helping keep americans safe. >> if we're going to keep our citizens and our allies safe, we have to continue to stay ahead of these changes. that's what our intelligence community has been doing extraordinarily well. these capabilities are part of the reason we have been able to foil numerous terrorist plots and adapt to a post-9/11 security environment. >>> want to take the story straight to our chief washington correspondent, host of "the lead," jake tapper. you talked to dick cheney. we know cheney was at the center of setting up this post-9/11 spying apparatus. what did he tell you about this? >> well, he was obviously not eager to talk in detail about these programs. and if you look at the documents that edward snowden leaked to various media outlets, it indicates that the surveillance program, some of them started as far back as 2002. i did ask vice president cheney about it because obviously, it was the story of day.
i. white house secretary jay carney said americans should look to the insurers for an explanation. >> part two. >> basically, throw you off that plan telling you after a year or two that it was changing and said, here's your new option because your plan has changed, that that new plan is grandfathered in, how can that be? you can't grandfather a plan in 2010 na didn't come into existence in 2012 or 2011. it's not about fault t. insurers are in the leadup to these marketplaces are doing what they had always done. >> all right, the most heated exchange came when a democratic congressman took issue with republicans that suggesting they've offered an alternative to obama care. take a look. >> we lost the policy fight and what did we do? we went back to our districts and we told our seniors although we voted no, we personally believe and we'll work with the bush administration to make it work. that's what we did and how many of you stood up to do that? none. zero. zero. >> well, will the gentleman yield? >> yes, i will. >> i will just tell you. >> where are you? >> right here. you aske

secretary jay carney. he said, kate, this is conflating disparate issues. >> brianna, thank you so much for that update. let's stay at the white house. the white house is responding to deadline pressure clarifying that americans will have until march 31st to sign up for obama care. this as the president's advisers are fighting back against another claim and denying that millions of people would lose coverage because of obama care. chief medical correspondent dr. sanjay gupta is joining us from atlanta. for more on this. a lot of confusion it seems like was created yesterday, sanjay. what are you hearing about the reports that millions of americans could be losing their existing coverage because that was a claim you heard over and over again from the president when he was campaigning for it. if you like your doctors and insurance plan, you can keep it. >> well, here's the bottom line. you have about 15 million people who buy insurance on their own right now, meaning they're not getting it through their employer. it's that population of people we're talking about specifically. what has ha
